The CGTG brings together trade unions, social movements and cooperatives and was created in 1987. It represents more than 61,000 workers, dispersed in different federations and sectors of the country. The Confederation is addressed to all workers: men and women, young and retired, in the formal and informal economy, self-employed, small producers, etc. In addition to its trade union action (awareness-raising, defence of rights, legal assistance), the CGTG contributes to the creation of social security for the most vulnerable (mutual funds, medical consultations) and has set up pharmacies in 12 villages. Finally, members can obtain micro-credits, for example to open their own business.
